Very well written analysis, GPM
Thanks. It was written BC (before coffee), so please forgive the typos and the grammatical mistakes.
I couldn’t agree more with your take on these insidious and successful antics of the, what I call “highjacking”, of the dogmatic terms and aims of Christianity, all for nefarious use by the enemies of the Church.
Social Justice, as the term itself, I first heard from the Left using it and secular media using it. When I converted into the Church was when I realized that the term was solidly engrained in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC), a document which has been around for ions. Universally the Church has an understanding of the term around the globe, so the Left wanted it, naturally, and have succeeded in subverting it.
This has lead to non-Catholics and conservatives to cast a suspicious eye toward the Catholic Church, as if the subverted version of the term came from them.
This is just my take on it, however. When you posited that it came first from the Left, I was interested in the who, what, when and where of the origin of that term, “social justice” that could have preceded the long established CCC.
This is interesting for me. Thanks.
In a like vein, I see the “its for the children” elevation of children to the sinless nature of Christ to be a similar perversion and substitution.
Where all was for Christ, now all is for an idealistic vision of “the child” in his place.
I agree completely.
The “turn the other cheek” and call to live a peaceful life has been subverted into suicidal pacifism.
